This is the new 16 hour class that NY State now requires all NY State residents take to apply for a NY State Concealed Carry license. Starting September 1st 2022, NY State has implemented the new CCIA law. (Concealed Carry Improvement Act)(Also called the 16+2 class or 18 hour class) *Dates and locations at bottom of this page* NYC, Nassau County, Suffolk County and Westchester County dates below. Our class includes all of the classroom and range portions required by law. You will use our guns and ammo, as part of the cost ope the class.

New applicants must take this class. Residents of NYC, Suffolk, Westchester, and Nassau Counties – even if they already have a pistol license, must take this class to renew their NY State pistol license or to upgrade from a Premise License to a Concealed Carry License.

We are the first instructors to be approved to teach in Westchester, New York City, Nassau and Suffolk County area 

See below for classes scheduled in the Westchester, New York City, Nassau and Suffolk County area 

 We have been teaching permit classes and NYS/US Concealed Carry law for over 15 years as a full-time training company. The benefit of that is we are available 7 days a week, allowing us to help students with paperwork and questions.Our 16 NYS class is based upon thousands of hours and experience in teaching. Our lead Instructor, James Emmick, has over 30,000 combined hours of experience in teaching and training. He is a certified concealed carry instructor, NRA handgun Instructor, Shotgun Instructor, Refuse To Be a Victim and Use of Deadly force Instructor as well as a current NYS Peace Officer.

Chris Z. will be assisting James in teaching the class. Chris is former military and law enforcement officer with Dallas PD and Grand Prairie PD. During his time in law enforcement, he was a member of the SWAT team as well as a department instructor for combatives, use of force and active shooter. 

Our class will meet, and exceed, the NY State and NYC required standards to apply for a NY State/NYC concealed carry license. This will be a class that people will want to take again. A class that you will send your friends and family to with full confidence that they will receive the same exceptional training in a safe and comfortable environment. This provides each student the opportunity to not only learn the required material but also master it. Our goal is to deliver to each student a world class experience that you will enjoy and never forget.

The classroom portion will be taught with plenty of breaks and the ability to stand and move around the classroom if you choose to.

The range portion of the class can be taught at an indoor range, on site, we will be setting up an indoor Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM) range. The UTM guns are real Glock 17 handguns that fire a 9mm marking round. These guns can be used for the live fire portion of the class and the huge benefit is that we do not need to utilize a gun range for class. These are a safe training option which NY State law allows to use during the class for the required live fire portion of the class.

Our class will not only give students the required training certificate needed to apply to NY State for a concealed carry license, but will also include the required training certificates to apply to Florida and Arizona. As part of the class you will be provided all the licensing paperwork needed to file with these states. This includes printed photos, fingerprint cards, pre-labeled envelopes and most importantly your certificates of completion. (Fingerprints for NY State will be done through your individual county after class) We are currently the only known company providing the multi-state licensing with the 16 hour NY state required training.

No gun, ammo or holster? No problem! We provide all the guns, holsters, belts, ammo, targets and class materials at no extra cost to you. Each student will receive their own safety glasses, yours to keep!
